That ladies and gentlemen is my very last selfie with braces.
All that metal came off this afternoon and I could not be more excited.
The closer it got to my appointment the more nervous I got. I was nervous that Dr. Lay would decide I needed to wear them a little longer. I was nervous that the process might be painful.
I have a long history of being afraid when it comes to people working on my teeth.
It wasn't too bad but taking the bands off did hurt.
I may have screamed a little.
At one point Dr. Lay told me not to worry, he wouldn't accidentally pull a tooth.
But that is exactly what it felt like he was trying to do.
Once everything was off he did some grinding and polishing.
That didn't hurt but I did not care for the sound.
I wish I had more pictures of the process.
And now on to the first selfie post braces....
I brought home my box today.
When you get braces they give you this long list of foods that you are not supposed to eat. I'll admit I didn't really follow that list very well.
How am I going to have cheese dip without chips?
I mean really!
Nuts is also on that list.
Paydays are my favorite candy bar and I have not had one in almost two years. I don't know why I chose to follow this one rule, but I did.
So today I went to the gas station and bought myself a Payday.
